William H. Reynolds Carillon Recital

David Christensen, University Carillonneur


Featuring music by John Stuart Archer, Filippo Gragnani, Francisco Tarrega, Alberto Dominguez, Ludwig van Beethoven, and others. Music from England, Germany, Spain, Italy, Canada, Mexico, and the United States will be on the program.

The recital is in remembrance of William Reynolds, former Chair of the UCR Music Department, and musical advisor in the acquisition of the carillon which is enjoyed throughout the year by the UCR community.
